dumb question

When installing a ceiling fixture and the box has 3 wires, white, black and red, where do you connect the red wire??
I tried ignoring it. Light lights, but I can't turn it off at the wall switch!

Try to connect the red and white. Wire nut the black. See if that works? Is there another switch possibly set up for a fan on the wall?
